Biography

Giacomo Modolo (1988), after graduating at the Art School of Vicenza, obtained his bachelor degree in Graphic Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice on February 2011 and, at the same institution, a postgraduate degree in Decoration on February 2013.  He took part in several group exhibitions in Italy and abroad, displaying paintings, drawings and graphics.

During the academic year 2011/2012 he worked as a tutor at the laboratory of chalcography of Prof. Alberto Balletti at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and now is working as a Professor of painting, research and experimentation at the Cignaroli Academy of Verona.

Characterized by an apparent falsification and deconstruction of representation, the works of Giacomo Modolo actually depict subjects and objects which have a vivid spatial and figurative concreteness.
The artist expresses himself in a synthesis of shapes and colors that gives life to human figures contextualized in environments without visible references, a result of the imagination and insight of the artist.
This leads to a materialization of thought that manifests itself first with the design, through what he calls the “sign”. Following the painting, that gives shape and volume in a perfect balance, capable of representing the internal dynamism of the composition.
The subjects are moving within the painting, in a conscious elaboration and representation of stories, experiences and memories that have been narrated and subsequently reinterpreted in the contemporary world.
